OLD IKD MEW CUSTOMS G05JPABED
NAMES CHANGED AT EVERY
Consul General Miki Saito Says
That Fashion of Naming Child
By Lottery Method is Becoming
Obsolete in Cities Though Still
in Vogue in Country Districts.
In the mode of baptising children
the sharp contrast between the old
and the new customs of Japan is
more evident than in most of their
other phases of life.
According to the old custom
the baptism of the child is accompa
nied with much ceremony. The baby
was taken to the temple escorted
by a procession at the end of which
was a ntuTaui. caiijiug me iiiiiu o
wardrobe, the size and richness of
which indicated the social standing
of the parents. When the temple
was reached a paper was handed to
the officiating priest, upon which
three names were written. These
names were copied on three separate
slips of paper by the priest who then
put them into a box and shook them
together, at the same time offering
i t. .u -.m1'
an invocation to tne guus. nuau
he would draw out one of the slips
and read out the name given to the
child, as it was believed by the gods.
Custom Getting Obcolete.
This custom is. according to Con
sul General Miki Saito of this city,
rapidly getting obsolete. In the large
cities It is not practiced at all but in
the remcte parts of the empire the
common people still cling to the old
custom. The custom of changing
a person's name on different occa
sions has. been stopped by the Jap
anese government, however.
It was customary to change a per
son's name as he passed through
different periods of life. When he at
tained his majority, which was for
merly at the age of 15, he got a new
name. "When he began official life
he got another new name, and every
time he rose a degree in his career
his name was again changed. Thus
it would be a wise parent that knew
its own child.
Celebration of Baptism.
At present all of this is different.
When a child is born his name is
registered in the register's office and
in the census bureau. His baptism
is made the cause of celebration
and gifts are sent to th'e child from
relatives and friends but no temple
ceremonies take place as most of the
enlightened Japanese do not now
have much to do with the Shinto or
Buddhist temples. The name is nev
er changed in any place of the empire
except of course in case of adoption
or in the case of a woman when she
cots married. The ace of majority
has also been changed to 21 years
as in other countries.
Attendance at the public schools
has also been made compulsory and
every child in Japan is bound through
the law to go to school when it at
tains the age of six years. Thus
the quaint and picturesque costumes
of old Japan are rapidly fading away
under the sway of the government
which looks to progress and has
very little sympathy With conserva
tism. While the decay of the quaint
charms of the old fashions may cause
a regret to the foreigners and tour
ists who visit the country the Jap
anese themselves are doing away
with all such customs so rapidly
that, the nation will soon be similar
in all its customs and government to
tho countries of the older civilized
